I have made a new workbook for my Year 4’s on “The Sea”. It’s a five or six week unit on sea shanties. It is mainly using recorders, some xylophones and lots of singing. There are three listening reflections -“10,000 Miles Away” by Bellowhead, “Skye Boat Song” and “He’s A Pirate” – I have sourced them all from Youtube.
The main point of the unit is to get the kids playing recorders again from where we left off. Another explicit aim is to introduce children to dotted notes – this is good when studying sea shanties as they are full of dotted notes!
I hope you can make use of the workbook. As always, feel free to use, print and adapt as needed.
